Trying to set up a Cisco AP 2602i as a bridge and  not having any luck.  My equipment consists of a Cisco 5500 controller and APs  1142 and 1131.  I'm trying to connect it via an SSID to a specific network but it's not talking.

You need to use the AP in Mesh Bridge mode when you're using a WLC.  The other end of the bridge needs to be in Mesh Bridge mode also and the Ethernet Bridging option needs to be enabled.

You'd be better off converting a pair of APs to Autonomous mode and using IOS to bridge properly.

won't that mess up my current configs for the other AP's?  My current MESH is set for EAP which is part of the error message - but I hesitate to change this to PSK for fear of disconnecting what's already connected.

You can use multiple Mesh groups on your WLC.  I doubt you're actually really using Mesh if you're using 1142 and 1131 APs.

You say you're trying to get a 2602 to connect to another network?  How are you trying to do that via the WLC??

Just trying to use the AP basically as a wireless connection.  I've put in the SSID and made it a bridge in the configuration.

You can't do that if the 2602 is running lightweight code.  A lightweight AP can NOT do bridging unless it is in Mesh mode and it is connected to another Mesh AP.

If you want to use the 2602 AP as a client bridge you'll need it to be converted to autonomous mode and configured as a Universal Workgroup Bridge, then it will connect to a lightweight AP as a client.
